As an update to a blog we posted about a month ago, we are happy to report that Honda’s Project Drive-In has saved four drive-in theaters around the country with it’s voting/fundraising efforts!
The four additional drive-in theaters that have been saved in Monetta, S. C,.; Ocala, Fla.; Cadet, Mo.; Elizabethton, Tenn. Previously, Honda had donated five other business-saving projectors to theaters in Oregon, Michigan, Maine, Texas, and Illinois.
“It’s not often that a company gets the opportunity to help preserve an American pastime. It has been a privilege to bring national and local attention to the fate of drive-ins and to meet the passionate owners of these small businesses,” said Alicia Jones, manager of Honda and Acura social marketing. “We hope that the #SaveTheDriveIn movement continues in the effort to help keep more drive-ins open for the next generation.”
Honda has donated the projectors that can cost upwards of $75,000. Additionally, Honda has raised $43,000. Find out more at Projectdrivein.com.
